I love when the Television Edition of Thursday Movie Picks rolls around. I watch a lot more TV than movies if I’m being honest. This week it’s all about game shows. Who doesn’t love a good classic TV game show. If you want to take part, the rules are simple; base on the theme of the week pick three to five movies (or shows) and tell us why you picked them.
1. Guys Grocery Games
I was late to the party on Guys Grocery Games but man, it’s one of my favorites these days. I can’t cook worth crap, which means I get a real thrill out of watching people rush around with weird ingredients trying to follow the rules and come up with something tasty. They do a lot of charity related episodes which is really nice to see too. I even have my favorite judges! And of course the judges that I could live without. If you’re looking for something fun, check it out!
2. Price Is Right
I mean, it’s a classic. I remember watching anytime I would stay home sick from school. My favorite game is PLINKO and the one I hate more than anything is the Mountain Climber. I hate the yodeling that goes along with it. The one game I think that’s most unfair is the 3 Strikes Game. I mean, it’s all chance there and no skill. You have no idea which chip you’re going to pull out! I do wonder if they’re “coded” some how.
3. Wheel Of Fortune
I’d kill this game if I ever appeared. That, or I’d freeze up and blow it. I love word puzzles and this is another classic game that I watch on a regular basis. I get way too fired up when I watch too. When someone gets greedy instead of just solving the puzzle and then lands on a bankrupt?! Oh man, my soul lights up.
4. Supermarket Sweep
I loved watching this back in the day and I think it’s making a come back soon! Of course it won’t be the same without the 80’s/90’s hair. I always loved when they had to rush around and hopefully come across one of the giant bonus items.
A pretty simple list this week. This was another week where I could have easily listed a few more but wanted to try and keep it short. I’m curious to see if I learn about any new game shows this week, and how many repeats happen!
